Kawhi Leonard responds to Gregg Popovich’s leadership criticism
— Mike Bohn (@MikeBohnMMA) November 26, 2018
Speaking with reporters Saturday in Milwaukee, Popovich offered a surprising assessment of Leonard’s leadership abilities.
“Kawhi was a great player, but he wasn’t a leader or anything,” Popovich said.
Kawhi responded by saying, “It’s just funny to me because, I don’t know if he’s talking about last year or not, but I guess when you stop playing they forget how you lead,” Leonard said. “Other than that, it doesn’t matter. I’m here with the Raptors.”
Blake Griffin is happy, healthy and hooping in Detroit
But being in Detroit instead of playing for the Clippers, Griffin is fine with it.
“Yeah, I’m glad it happened,” Griffin told the Times. “I’m not saying I don’t miss certain people. There were some awesome fans that I got to know and I felt like I was very close with them. And there are some people you miss over there, but it was just time for a fresh start.
“I’m glad to be here.”
Interest in trading for John Wall not very strong
“John Wall is a very different situation [from Bradley Beal],” said Wojnarowski on the Woj Pod. “You can count on one hand, and probably with just a couple of fingers places that really might have interest in taking his contract on and what it all means to bring him in.
“I would never say there’s no market for John Wall, but I think Bradley Beal has a much broader market. But if Washington was going to do something, they would have to get every last asset they could for Bradley Beal.”
